About Paula Peterson and Griff Butler
We're a family of three from Evanston, Illinois. I work for Northwestern University and my husband works for United Airlines. Our son is in college now at the University of Illinois but he loves spending quiet weekends with us at Sleepy Hollow Cottage. We use the house mostly in the off-season when all the crowds have left Door County. We hike and bike, eat pizza at Wild Tomato, watch movies, go bowling, play Settlers of Cataan, Scrabble, and cards, sleep late, make cookies, and read, read, read. We hope you enjoy Sleepy Hollow Cottage as much as we do.
Paula Peterson and Griff Butler purchased this House in 2013
Why Paula Peterson and Griff Butler chose Egg Harbor
In my childhood I spent many happy hours at my grandfather's simple country cottage in a small town in the Laurentian Mountains, near Montreal. My grandmother cooked dinners that she served on the screened porch and from the backyard all the children could disappear into the woods, where we would pick blueberries and play make believe. There was a nearby lake where we would go swimming and eat french fries sprinkled with vinegar and ice cream cones. To me it was a magical place, and I always looked forward to returning. When I grew up and was finally able to afford a country house of my own, I knew I wanted to buy property in Door County. I love how it is surrounded by water and how easy it is to get on my bike and just ride for hours and hours. I think when I was looking for my house, I unconsciously searched for something reminiscent of my grandfather's place---simple, charming, private, and nestled in the woods. I found all that I was looking for and more with Sleepy Hollow Cottage. I fell in love with it immediately because of the screened porch and the wood-burning fireplace (both musts for me) and when I looked out the windows and saw nothing but trees, I knew it was the house for me.

Ideal location for a dog-friendly Door County visit
We have stayed in a number of rentals in Door County but this one really checked all the boxes: dog and family friendly, plenty of room(s), comfortable beds, great kitchen with all the amenities, a fireplace with lots of wood provided, board games galore, WiFi & Netflix! It was clean, well-appointed, and an all around fantastic rental.
The house was very nice. Perfect location. Everything we needed. Would definitely rent again.
Great house in wooded area of Egg Harbor
We had a terrific girl's weekend at Sleepy Hollow Cottage! Mom, daughters and granddaughters all had a cozy stay and slept well. The house was comfortable, and nicely furnished. We cooked good breakfasts in the well-equipped kitchen, washing dishes with a woodsy view out the kitchen window. We enjoyed the heated porch, and had a games and movie nights in front of the living room fireplace. The house is located conveniently close to town, so we were able to grocery shop, browse at some cute shops and galleries only a few minutes away. The fall color around the house was beautiful. Definitely will visit in the summer next time to take advantage of the screened porch, BBQ and fire pit, as well as warm-weather Door County fun.
The house was perfect for our family. Such a great location, felt secluded but was just minutes away from shops and restaurants. Traveling with 2 toddlers a kitchen is a must have and this one is nicer than most places we have stayed in the area. It was a nice perk to have Netflix access for kids shows. Host Paula was responsive when booking but we never needed to contact them during as our stay was perfect! Would definitely stay again.
Wonderful place to stay and relax
Our family of 5 plus our son's dog. enjoyed 5 incredible days at Sleepy Hollow Cottage. We enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the cottage setting in the woods, the lovely cottage itself, eating on the screened porch, campfires with s'mores and just relaxing in the northern jewel of Door County. We loved our stay at the cottage and hope to return again someday.
Clean, well maintained, quiet...PERFECT!
This home is absolutely perfect in every way. It's spacious, quiet, very clean and well maintained, and close to downtown Egg Harbor. The owners are a pleasure to work with and make the rental process so easy. We will always check the availability of Sleepy Hollow Cottage before looking anywhere else for our next trip to Door County.
So glad you enjoyed your stay! We do work hard to keep the place well-maintained and comfortable for guests, so I'm glad that shows. Hope you can visit us again soon.
